I get something like this every year. I think my nostrils must be narrow or my sinuses slim. Anyway last year my doctor wouldn't give me anything for it and told me to use a decongestant and take Paracetamol. This year, the old one having retired, I have a new young doctor.
I told him about the decongestant and the Paracetamol. 'Oh, you've clearly been doing all the right things', he said. 'You shouldn't still have the infection. I have no hesitation prescribing Amoxycillin.' Great, I thought. Treatment at last.
It is now 7 days later and the treatment has ended. Do I feel better? I'm not sure. And then, yesterday, I read this. Hmmm, back to the coffee and alcohol cure then.
